“Shivlinga at Hampi”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

It is an interesting site. The subtle way the deity was erected by the technologists of that days may be an idea for the present. The empire of Vijaynagar worshiped Shiva and that particular site bears its mark.

One of the largest Shivlinga+Yoni in the area. Worth a look-- We stopped for about 10 min. Sturdy and lovely architecture.

“Monolithic idol”
Reviewed December 10, 2012

Well maintained monument . But sadly no Historical description about the temple. The monument should be included in every Hampi travel catalogue to attract more tourist .

“Lord shiva is great”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

Huge Shiva linga is surrounded by cool waters of Tungabadhra, A old priest always standing in water is ready to give blessings of lord, he sprinkles the water which touches the lotus feet of the lord, Shiva is located next to the Lakshmi Narashima who is also a master piece of work but heartless invaders have not spared him too.
